CAC GHB 24: At even ere the sun was set

At even ere the sun was set-24
And in the evening when the sun was set they brought to him all that were diseased
Mark 1:32
At even ere the sun was set
The sick o Lord around Thee lay
O in what divers pain they met
O with what joy they went away

Once more tis eventide and we
Oppressed with various ills draw near
What if thy form we cannot see
We know and feel that thou art here

O Saviour Christ our woes dispel
For some are sick and some and sad
And some have never loved Thee well
And some have lost the love they had

And some have found the world is vain
Yet from the world they break not free
And some have friends who give them pain
Yet have sought a friend in Thee

And all o Lord crave perfect rest
And to be wholly free from sin
And they who fain would serve Thee best
Are conscious most of wrong within

O saviour Christ thou too art Man
Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried
Thy kind but searching glance can scan
The very wounds that shame would hide

Thy touch still has it’s ancient power
No word from Thee can fruitless fall
Hear in this solemn evening hour
And in thy mercy heal us all
